#52weeknailchallenge: winter

I may have done this mani already... This was kind of a "my bad" situation. I wanted to add some white glitter that would have been kinda like snow... AND then I forgot.... Fantastic, but at least it's an awesome mani. And I got to use my brand new Mundo de Unas stamping polishes.

I started with a white base, which was Sinful Colors snow me white. I then did a gradient with, from the cuticle, I love Hean black, Essence rock my world!, Hean City Fashion 172 and snow me white.

Once that was dry I stamped an image from BP-L011 with Mundo dark gray. Top coated and once that was dry I painted a coat of Essence matt about you over it.

As I mentioned I wanted to add a coat of white glitter, but I forgot. I still think this counts as winter though. It looks dark and stormy and I actually like this attempt better than my first one, which you can find here.

What do you think? Which attempt do you think is the better of the two? I may have peeked ahead at the challenge and I found that there is a prompt for an ombre... And I don't know what to do... I mean I have done a gradient for purple, for winter, I may have done one for yellow and now I'm stuck colour wise. Any ideas?

And as always thanks for reading!

  1. This is gorgeous!!! Oh man, you really outdid yourself as this is exactly what I see in my mind when I think of winter (and no, no snow as that stuff just turns into yucky slush that makes me slip and fall).

    About that ombre... why not try a blue? Or, even better, mint-to-teal?
